    An incredible medical thriller!

    Though Mia Kendall and Race Daniels are the two main characters in this wonderful story there are a number of very important people throughout the book. They are all amazingly well developed and written. I was caught up in the heartbreaking circumstances that both Jeme and Catherine were trapped in. I desperately wanted everything to work out for both of them as well as their families. The danger and mystery that Mia and the others faced was so remarkably well crafted that I was captivated by the story. I got sucked into this book and at times I was completely unaware of what was going on around me. I received a free copy of this book from the author.

    Will Stay With You Long After You Finish

    This was truly an edge of your seat medical thriller! From the suburbs of America to the deepest darkest Africa, you never knew what was going to happen next. Mia, a pediatric heart surgeon, left the US to work in Africa. She has performed many heart transplants but her patients are rejecting hearts almost as quickly as they have new hearts. She goes over her procedures in her mind and feels like she's done everything by the book, and is completely baffled. She joins forces with a young pilot who transports donated organs to the two area hospitals. It was interesting to learn that negro albinos are thought to be cursed and yet their body parts are thought to be good luck when used by the witch doctors. They are called ghosts because of their white skin. They are being hunted down and murdered because of the high value of their bodies. Back in the states a research Doctor is being pushed to finish his research on a new anti-rejection drug. He finds that two of his vials containing the experimental drug is missing from his lab. He is still six months away from having a breakthrough that will be approved by the FDA. A young mother is pleading for help with her five year old daughter who is on her deathbed needing a new heart. Money is tight and she's contemplating traveling to Africa where she can get her a transplant at a lower cost. All against her husband's wishes. How will all of these factors tie in together? I was totally shocked at what happened toward the end! Good job Lisa and Lynne!! I was given an ebook copy of this book but was not required to write a review, positive or otherwise.

    A page-turning read!

    Ghost Heart is a page-turning read! Based on real life events, this medical thriller takes readers into the jungles of Africa where atrocities are being committed against albinos. The haunting story that unfolds is one that held me in its grip, stirring my emotions and provoking much thought. I loved the strengths Harris and Gentry each bring to the novel and am begging for more collaborations from this dynamic duo! I received a complimentary copy of this book. No review was required, and all thoughts expressed are my own.

    An edge of your seat medical thriller!

    Ghost Heart is the newest medical thriller from Lisa Harris and Lynne Gentry. I was hooked from the beginning and didn't want to put it down! I have been a fan of Lisa Harris for several years and she warned us advanced readers that this would be harder to read than some of her other stories. She was right. There were some difficult scenes to read, but it forced me the reader to open my eyes to the the atrocities others in the world have to face on a daily basis. This novel was very informative about how albino people are treated in Africa and the issue of black market organ donation. This novel is fast-paced and suspenseful. As stated in the synopsis, this book takes you on journey all the way from Cincinatti to the jungles of Africa. It's a race against time to figure out why there are so many transplant patients rejecting their new hearts. Readers will fall in love with the complex characters that include Mia the American transplant surgeon in Africa, Race the ex-military pilot, Jeme the African mother of a ghost child, and Catherine the mother desperate to do anything to save her daughter who needs a new heart. There are so many themes present in the novel that it is difficult to include them all. There is determination, reconciliation, forgiveness, moving past your past, the power of a mother's love, and many more. If you are in the mood for a real page turner, this is the book for you. You will not be disappointed. The novel is full of suspense with just the right amount of romance. Just the way I like it! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Heartbreaking and Harrowing Medical Suspense

    I don't even know where to start with how much I loved this book. I knew going into it, that Lisa Harris was going to give me a suspenseful, thrilling and moving story right from the start. I was unfamiliar with Lynne Gentry's work, but if this book is any indication, I'll be checking out her other offerings as well. I guess the place to start would be with the title, Ghost Heart. Because this book does have heart. At the core, is the love of a mother for her child, who will do anything and everything possible to alleviate suffering or to provide protection. Each chapter, with its date and time stamp, propels you through the action and gives you a sense of time running out. You are literally pulled through this story, or maybe I should say, wrenched through this story, because it is full of action, but it is also a harrowing experience. This book was very meaningful and sheds light on something that is happening in the world that I knew absolutely nothing about, but that should definitely be brought to the forefront of the public's attention. It is literally heartbreaking. You would do well to read this book, take it to heart, and do what you can to help bring a bit of love and healing to this hurting world. Read Ghost Heart - you won't be sorry you did. **I received an ARC copy of this book from the authors in exchange for an honest review**
